Emeril by T-fal Digital Immersion Deep Fryer Review

Review: Emeril by T-fal FR7015001 2.65-Pound / 3.3-Liter Stainless Steel Digital Immersion Deep Fryer

Note:Reviewed by Sheila Watson Kraklow

The reason that I am reviewing the Emeril by T-fal Digital Immersion Deep Fryer is as follows:

When considering a big purchase for my home kitchen I always try to get the best I can afford.  Now, in my life, I am really interested in anything a chef does, uses, eats, or sells so when I decided to buy a professional styled deep fryer for my kitchen I did look first for Emeril Lagasse and his brand.

I looked first on Amzon.com and found one that would fit my interests and my expertise.  As a professional cook and gourmet foodie I strive to stay up to date on all the new appliances and techniques.  Thus my interest in the Emeril by T-fal FR7015001 2.65-Pound/3.3 Liter Stainless Steel Digital Immersion Deep Fryer; if Emeril endorses it, then I’m sure I will love it.

I was happy to find three of these deep fryers on Amazon.com.  If you want to see them here is a link to that page. Emeril by T-fal Digital Immersion Deep Fryer.

The pricing varied for the Emeril by T-fal Digital Immersion Deep Fryer but the one I decided to buy was a terrific bargain after being marked down from $199.99 I paid only $151.42 And I got free shipping.

The deep fryer arrived at my door within 5 days of shipping, and Amazon does offer 2 day shipping if you would need it sooner. I unpacked the box quickly and after following the manufactures directions before for use I was soon ready to make fried foods.

I cut a few potatoes into French fries and was happy that it didn’t take very long for the oil to reach the correct temperature, and using the big viewing window I could keep an eye on the food as it fried.  I also set the timer according to directions for French fries.  They were delicious, crisp, lightly browned and the whole experience for my first time using the deep fryer was great.

Emeril by T-fal Digital Immersion Deep Fryer

“We picked this one rather than the non-Emeril model for the digital setting of the temperature. I have heard digital was better for accuracy (Alton Brown). Set up was easy. Reading the manual is a must to figure out the digital controls. The self-draining and filtering worked as it should. Pay attention to your oil levels do not overfill!!! The amount of food you can fry is good for a family of four. The only thing I wish this fryer had was a higher temp setting but, it seems to be the industry standard. We love this fryer!!”

“This product is exceptional. It is easy to use. Very functional and does everything even storing the oil. Great product and I highly recommend. Amazon is very easy to work with.”

“This is my 5th deep fryer and it is the best. The main problem with large capacity deep fryers is managing the oil. This fryer makes it easy. It waits for the oil to cool and automatically filters out bits of food. The oil container can be removed and stored in the refrigerator. The only part that cannot be put in the dishwasher is the heating element with the control panel. It is extremely easy to clean. Fry quality is excellent.”

“I have cooked fresh caught fish in my fryer twice and I couldn’t be more pleased. The fish was golden and very
moist. Clean-up is so easy, much better than my old cast iron skillet.
This is an Amazon Verified Purchase.”
